Grymn Tunnel Fighters.
« on: January 30, 2010, 09:13:33 PM »
Sagunt and I both had the same idea...but he beat me to it here:

http://forum-of-doom.com/index.php?topic=11295.msg184706#msg184706

It has taken me a while to finally get a pack of Pig-Iron heads but I finally got a whole load of them (the jumbo head pack):

I haven't gone as far as Sagunt did (with weapon swaps) but I have taken a different approach to the conversions.

I'll post pix soon!

I love it Inso. :thumbup: Is that a robot or Mega Armour? Lovely pose, full of character and very menacing. Can't wait to see him finished.

I take it that is some sort of commander type at the bottom. Looking good.

Here are another 6 finished:



The only trouble is, I don't have any ready to paint at the moment so I'll be busy converting the next batch tomorrow (that will be 6 with shotguns)...and while I'm doing that, I'll work on the sculpts too.

I have 6 more Grymn but this time they have shotguns...I also have a little more progress on the robot:



Obviously I have more work to do but it's a case of ticking along :).

Oh...My...God...!

I just bought tanks.

11 of them :D.

...and they are perfect for my tunnel fighting plans!

You've gotta love E-bay.  Now all I have to do is wait patiently for them to arrive :mrgreen:.

Fortunately, I have some more Grymn to convert (another 11 arrived on Friday) so I have stuff to keep me busy while I wait.

I've finished the 6 shot-gunners...I'll get pix tomorrow (they aren't dry yet).

I haven't worked on the robot since the last pic but I'll get to work on him at some point...

All these troops and ideas and I haven't even organised them into units yet...I guess I'll have to do it at some point and one of the main things will be having robots as part of each squad.

So are the robots planned on being fighting machines (dare i say dreadnaughts...) or will their purpose be more of a tunnel maintenance machine that the tunnel fighters protect. I don't think I'm explaining myself well here.

The robots will be 'disposable'.They will be very heavily armoured and their main purpose is to advance in front of the Grymn with over-large riot shields to protect the Grymn from incoming fire.

The shields will fold away down the sides of the robot when not in use but will fold out when needed.

I am not (at the moment) thinking of having combat robots...but that may change if I am successful with the others.
